." we should note that julian assange, the controversial wikileaks founder who remains the subject of a europe ann rest warrant has decided to run for office in australia. he announced thursday he's created his own political party. it's called what else, the wikileaks party. he wants to run for the australian senate under its banner. campaigning might be a challenge, for more than a year he's been holed up in the ecuadorian embassy hoping to avoid extradition to sweden where authorities want to question him about a sexual assault case. assange told "the new york times," "my plans are to essentially parachute in a crack troupe of investigative journalists into the senate and to do what we have done with wikileaks in holding banks and government and intelligence agencies to account." we should know that an ambitious back door effort to kill off the electoral college is now halfway to its goal. under what's called the national popular vote compact states pledge to award their electoral votes to the candidate who gets the most votes nationwide. that's the national popular vote winner. it

. attorney alan dershowitz is an adviser to the team of julian assange. wikileaks has never confirmed manning was its source, but it's widely believed it was. mr. dershowitz, thank you for joining us. >> the statutory framework is so vague, what manning is convicted of, the new york times -- there are no standards. most of the material that the private produced should never have been classified, for example, that helicopter film. the public should have a right to see that and judge for itself whether or not the united states made an honest mistake, which i believe it did, or whether there was something more nefarious at work. this is all up to the judge. he has to make a decision as to what was inside of the private's head, whether or not he intended to help the enemy or whether he intend to help the united states and the public by being a whistle blower. i hope he makes a rational, calculated decision and doesn't just throw the book at him in order to discourage other people like snowden, because the snowden case hovers above this case. >> well, bradley manning in court sai

activists such as julian assange and wikileaks and facing the music. yeah, we will talk to lon snowden, the father of edward snowden to get his reaction. brooke, one of the things you said was very significant when you asked chris about what national security damage there has been. there was some information that that was in osama bin laden's k30u7 compound. when the wikileaks happened years ago the white house and obama administration said this would mean that all of the afghans and all of the iraqis named in these wikileaks, named from battlefield reports as being cooperative, as working with u.s. authorities, that their lives were at risk and that was something that i think a lot of journalists took very seriously, i have asked the administration a number of times can they point to one example, even not telling me the name of the person, even not telling me any specifics that would bring out that person's idea, but can you give me any, any proof could that actually happen? >> what did they say? >> they could not or they have not been able to prove one, point to one example of somebo

going to go a long way toward determining whether the justice department tries to prosecute julian assange, the head of wikileaks, who was the person in charge of -- in control of those stolen secrets. >> so considering all that we have been hearing about the recent leaks david, do intelligence -- intelligence officials now acknowledge that there is more work that we have to do here? >> you know after the manning case, the president signed an executive order that set up a task force to get classified information under better control. in other words, make sure that never again can an army private get his hands on so many secrets. so they did things like disable external drives on government computers so people cannot download classified information on to thumb drives and cds. and they set up systems that will track exactly who is browsing and downloading from these systems. but then along comes edward snowden, who used his position as an i.t. guy for the nsa to get around all those safeguards. so now the pentagon and the nsa have instituted this two-person rule which requires i.t. g

-quarters of a million pages, the largest leak ever, that he was fueling julian assange's message. this was supposed to be a big deal but we hear not guilty of aiding the enemy but convicted of supplying information to the press. is this a victory here? >> no, it's not a victory for him. he's looking at really decades in prison and i think the judge struck the right balance. i think what manning did was wrong but it wasn't treason. it wasn't an effort to help our enemies. it was an incredibly misguided, wrong-headed attempt to get information out to the public. that's a crime. he was convicted of a crime, but just because you are a bank robber doesn't mean you're a murderer. there are distinctions among crimes. >> i get the bank robber not a murderer but the line between whistleblower and espionage, where is it? if you work for the government and leak things, why is that not espionage or when does it become that? >> we have a long tradition in this country and one of the complexities of this whole case which frankly i haven't figured out and i don't think the legal system has figu

. president obama understood it in 2008. he should be asked to fully understand it right now. julian assange. says the verdict is dangerous. as we look into the story, it says he has called the guilty verdict a dangerous precedent and said he represents the quintessential whistleblower in a statement released tuesday. taking a look at more of the statement by the head of wikileaks. a short-sided judgment that cannot be tolerated and must be reversed. it could never be conveying the true information to the public is an espionage. president obama has initiated more proceedings against whistle- blowers and publishers than all previous presidents combined. guest: again the word espionage. it covers conduct with nothing to do with espionage. a 1970 world war i archaic law. way beyond whistleblowing. he is not the typical whistle- blower. the typical whistle-blower is far more cautious.the typical whistleblower, i do not know of any case where someone has unloaded that much he ismation publicly. exceptional. effectiveere are laws, the overwhelming majority is legal and does work through those channels.
